Spring Fair brings fireworks, festivities, and funnel cakes to campus

The annual festival returned to the Homewood campus for the 53rd year this past weekend

Before finals begin, Hopkins students flock to the Beach and Keyser Quad for a cherished end-of-the-year tradition: Spring Fair, which returned to Homewood campus for its 53rd run.

The event kicked off Thursday evening with a culture show at Shriver Hall, followed by fireworks at Keyser Quad. On Friday and Saturday, JHU community members gathered outdoors to enjoy lawn games, inflatables, and endless offerings from food vendors.

The fair's traditional vendor fair, rebranded the Art Marketplace, hosted artisans and vendors from across Baltimore and the greater DMV area. Also in attendance, as per usual, were the petting zoo's beloved goats and donkeys.

Saturday night's concert, headlined by rapper Flo Milli with opening act Cheat Codes, brought the weekend to a close.

Spring Fair is hosted by the Office of Leadership Engagement and Experiential Development in collaboration with The HOP and other campus partners.
